Topography Series | Ordered Circles VIII, Woodcut Print Collage on 140 lb Canson Cold Press Watercolor Paper, 24" x 18", 2020
I love wood with its textures and patterns. A Dremel tool was used to carve out the natural lines in a piece of Luan wood.
The wood plate started at 5ft x 18” but it wouldn’t fit on the printing press. I cut off 10” which left almost 50” of printing surface. The paper used is Lennox 100, off white, 250 gsm (about 140 lb) neutral pH, acid free.
I created a 6 ft x 12 ft woodcut print collage for my graduate exhibit in 2011 but afterwards I rolled that collage up and it’s moved with me 7 times.
The 2020 pandemic gave me the opportunity to repurpose it into several compositions on gallery wrap canvas and 150 lb watercolor paper using Lines Neutral ph Adhesive.
